Our primary goal is always focused on providing the best possible e-mail
service to the CMU community, so if replacing CVS makes Ken's job easier
or makes it easier for outside folks to contribute to the Cyrus code
base we'd be behind it.

I know you've been using git and seem to be pleased with it.  Is there
anything else you have in mind?

Ken ultimately outvotes me in this decision since he's the primary
in-house user of the Cyrus CVS repository.  If changing it makes him
unhappy, that would make me unhappy, too :)
